Here, have a pointless short story.

This will never stop being amazing!

Artist David Kracov was commissioned to create an award to be given in honor of, and named for, the late director of Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl.
Called the “Book Of Life,” it was inspired by the extraordinary life of Rabbi Yossi Raichik, a man who saved thousands of children’s lives from the devastating effects of the Chernobyl disaster. The metal sculpture has pages filled with words from those he touched, and also features a flurry of butterflies, each representing the 2,547 children he helped save and give new lives.

Not dead

Really, I'm not.

Nor was I abducted by aliens (although that would make an interesting story, I'm sure). Nor am I currently hiding underground from the Russian Mafia or the Yukuza.

I just suck.

I was in a funk, a big funk. A non-writing funk.... I am only slowly coming out of it now. And my soul was eaten by a video game. Sad, I know. But it really puts things into perspective when you play a video game (an RP by the name of Dragon Age: Origins) and realize that the characters and their stories and backgrounds are better written and more thought out than a lot of novels you've read.

Really, I love this game more than I can say. It's a sick, sick obsession.

But it was helpful for the funk... to be able to escape.

So yes. Not dead.

Just incredibly lazy and antisocial and uninspired and feeling totally meh.

I hope to get back on track now... write... submit... update... write... read... write. Did I mention write?
